Every family needs a BOOM Box

Every family needs a B.O.O.M. box. No, I'm not talking about a music machine. I'm talking about a box used to contain "Broken, Odd Or Missing" items. What do you do when you come across a plastic whatcha-ma-call-it that you recognize but you just can't remember where it goes? If you're like most people, you hate to toss it because you know as soon as you do, someone in the family will ask whether or not you've seen it.
In the organizing business, we encourage our customers to create homes for items. Why not create a home for those odd, hard-to-place items which you may need later?
The easiest way to create a BOOM box for your household is to use a shoe box or similar sized container. Label it as the BOOM Box and tell your family what its intended use is.  If you prefer, a clear container works well too and can be purchased from your local discount store. 
The next time you run across  a rubber plug the size of a dime you'll probably be convinced you need to hang on to it for a while.  Be assured you'll now have a place to put this unique item!
Warm regards,
Audrey Thomas
